Golden Delicious

What better symbol of fall than the apple? I love this time of year when the store shelves are filled with crisp tasty apples. And what better name for an autumn-themed scrapbooking kit than Golden Delicious?

This month the Noel Mignon classic kit, Golden Delicious, is brimming with beautiful fall-patterned papers and matching embellishments. It is the first time I have ever used a Noel Mignon kit, so I was pleasantly surprised by the number of papers and amount of embellishments included. Consequently, I was able to make a number of layouts–and I still have tons of product to scrap the rest of my fall photos.

My first layout, Fall Football Fun, is a double-page layout based on a sketch challenge at Scrapbook Challenges. I do not make two-page layouts very often, so this page was a lot of fun. I scrapped some photos of my husband and sons playing football one fall evening last year.

The second layout I made, Happy Fall, is also based on a sketch challenge at Scrapbook Challenges. This page documents my son carving jack-o-lanterns the day after Halloween. I used the pumpkins as decoration for our Halloween party, so I did not let him carve them. He insisted though, so on November 1, he convinced his sister to help him make jack-o-lanterns.

The last layout (so far) is called Being Sparky. My son is a volunteer junior firefighter and he offered to be Sparky the Fire Dog at a recent community event. We were very proud of him–he donned his fire gear and a very uncomfortable mask to entertain the children. The design inspiration came from a layout on Jana Eubank’s blog in which she scraplifted a page by Tracie Claiborne (from Tracie’s podcast and video series Live Inspired). To see one other layout from this kit and find out more about the Live Inspired series, go to this post on my blog.

Fall is certainly a wonderful time of year and a fun time to scrap, especially when you have such inspirational product like that in the Noel Mignon kit. I cannot wait to use the rest of the kit!

No go create!
